So, what’s this all about? Why are you here?! Well, a couple reasons… If you own a small business, work at a small business, or are thinking about starting a small business, you’ve either learnt quickly or will learn very quickly that it’s not easy. It’s physically and emotionally draining. And, not nearly as glamorous as others perceive it to be! I started Riffraff six years ago and cried myself to sleep over countless reasons more often than not! I still do! Six years later it’s STILL not easy—but I’ll tell you one thing, it’s rewarding! Was it Henry Ford who said ‘chop your own wood and it will warm you twice?’… it’s true. The experiences (whether great or crappy), relationships, and strength I’ve obtained from Riffraff make my life so full that I feel incredibly grateful every single morning. And isn’t that what life is about? Now, there’s no way I’d be able to tell you all this if it wasn’t for my (what I like to think I coined) ‘Good Vibe Tribe.’ Starting out I had a couple of friends (go find Benfield Photography and Euna Mae’s!) who also had small businesses in the area, who I often looked to for support, asked a million questions, and bounced ideas off of. Since then, my tribe has grown (go find Kelly and Zac from Crown Beauty Bar)! NWA is filled to the brim with uber creative and driven people—let’s all be friends! Let’s get the biggest ‘Good Vibe Tribe’ going! Xoxo, Kirsten
